This colorful vegetable and grain side dish recipe leads a double life! Serve it as a side to turkey or roast beef, or for a light supper, it can be a meatless main dish.
It's important to rinse quinoa well before using it to remove the bitter-tasting and naturally occurring saponin coating (nature's insect repellent) that forms on the outside of the kernel.
For a variation on this recipe, substitute a different cooked grain, such as rice, couscous or barley, for the quinoa.
